Mango Salsa


2 ripe mangoes, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the diced ingredients in a bowl. Add lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld together. Serve this vibrant mango salsa with tortilla chips, grilled fish, or tacos for a refreshing summer treat.

Mango Smoothie

1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
1 banana, frozen
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
Ice cubes

In a blender, combine the diced mango, frozen banana, Greek yoghurt, almond milk, and honey or maple syrup if using. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add ice cubes for a thicker consistency if desired. Pour into glasses and garnish with mango slices for an extra touch of elegance.

Grilled Mango Chicken

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, lime juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to create the marinade. Add the chicken breasts and diced mango to the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken breasts for 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through, basting with the marinade. Serve the grilled mango chicken with rice or salad for a flavour-packed meal.

Mango Coconut Popsicles

Mango Coconut Rice

1 cup jasmine rice
1 1/2 cups coconut milk

In a saucepan, combine jasmine rice and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the rice with a fork and gently fold in the diced mango and shredded coconut. Season with salt to taste. Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.
